The body of work, created by painter and fiber artist Stephen Towns, examines the American dream through the lives of Black Americans from the late 18th century to the present time. Using labor as a backdrop, Towns highlights the role African Americans have played in building the economy and explores how their resilience, resistance and perseverance have challenged the United States to truly embrace the tenets of its Declaration of Independence. 


Reynolda—as a museum, garden, and historic country estate—connects people with the beauty and complexity of the American story through the integration of art, learning, and nature. We cultivate experiences and environments that foster belonging.
